List of calls

Download an overview of the calls planned for the 2021-2027 funding period. This information is preliminary and subject to approval by our monitoring committee.

How do calls work?

For each call, we publish:

  • Terms of reference, which set out the specific criteria we are looking for;
  • And an opening and closing date for the call.

Outside of these dates it is not possible to apply for funding.

Applications must be submitted online through the Interreg Europe portal

We will make the system available before the call opens, so you can register and start preparing your application, but the submit button will only be active during the open call.

The programme's Monitoring Committee decides which projects to approve. Documents for the clarification and complain procedure are available below.

What do our projects do?

We support interregional cooperation projects.

Our projects bring together policy organisations from at least three different countries in the 27 EU member states, Norway and Switzerland. For four years, they learn from each other and work together on a shared policy issue.

The lessons they learn lead to better regional policies and a more sustainable economic, social and environmental impact on the ground for the people and the places they serve.

Our topics

We support projects in five thematic EU priorities and one non-thematic issue on better governance:

  • Smart
  • Green
  • Connected
  • Social
  • Citizens
  • Governance

We aim to improve regional policies through capacity building in all of these topics.

The co-financing rate

The average total budget per project is 1-2 MEUR:

  • EU member state partners receive up to 80% of project activities;
  • Private non-profit organisations can receive 70% of their cost refunded;
  • Partners from Norway receive 50% funds;
  • Switzerland manages the funding of its partners directly.
